We need immediate help to develop our home, in the beautiful Charente department 16. We are a family of seven, four of the children have grown up and flown the nest and are living in France and the Uk but are regular visitors throughout the year.
My husband Dave has been a martial instructor for the past 48 years, and continues to teach classes though out the week and runs courses at weekends all of which you can participate free of charge. our daughter is 18yr and is at university. She enjoys horseriding and is a keen volleyball player, loves music and is in a band, she always singing. We have a lovely little cocker spaniel, and a cat who thinks she is a dog,
. I am a feeder ( this is what my kids say) I enjoy cooking and baking and having everyone at home to eat it. I am gluten free and a vegetarian, Dave is a meat eater. so I cater for both.
We are quite rural in beautiful countryside waiting to be explored via cycle or foot. The train station is 25km away with direction to Bordeaux, Paris, Nantes, Royan and many more wonderful places. 6km to the bus stop that will take you to Chalais, Angouleme, and Jonzac.

We are in need of help from a male or female, young or older adult, with gardening including making a vegetable patch. Pruning the shrubs and trees. Weeding and strimming and general help around the garden. painting shutters and windows, interior painting clearing out outbuilding plus other diy projects including upcycles furniture.
All help will be done along side myself or Dave. You need to be strong and fit, have commonsense and come with a good work ethic, not too needy and no slackers. I will look after you as I hope someone will look after one of mine and i require the same respect.
Own transport would be very useful, but not a necessity.
